their losing streak . auburn was notine playing. there was a pick between lsu and mem mem. that is. a lot of time under water. and brian is here to help us out. thank you so much. buy . see you later. have a great show. do you usually leave women speechless. gretchen: good morning everyone . i hope you had a fantastic weekend. i am gretchen carlson. the final presidential debaturped way . and the focus is foreign policy. attacks are flying from all sides. >> steve: there is a damaging
3:01 am
new report on what happened in libya. it is not the store store that the white house is pedaling. could the timing be worse for the president. >> brian: is it a fight he wants to have. the swing states swinging further in romny's case. what is he doing? what is the president doing to catch up? "fox and friends" starts right now. >> brian: this is the last time we have to stay up late 10:30 and sleep for 90 minutes. >> steve: tomorrow we'll be sleep deprived after watching late and short turn around . we are up for it it is our job. gretchen: yes. of course, we do. just a few hours from now. president obama and mitt romney will meet face to face
3:02 am
in florida. the focus is foreign policy. john roberts. i am scared to see what your wake-up call. i went to bed later. we talk about the importance of the debates. it is important when you look at politico george tracking poll. all issues will be on the table. iran and libya and syria and china, and we have an idea of where mitt romney will go watching his running mate talking about president obama's cuts to the military in the sequestration and infamous open mike moment with the russian president.
3:03 am
when you see your president whispering to the president of russia that he will have more flexibility on missile defense, it begs the question. how much more does he want to give away . he gave technology that would have been on line next year. look out of all of the areas where mitt romney and i are very different than barak obama ask joe biden. we'll not gut our military. we needed strongest military. >> steve: on the subject of libya. if you call it an act of terror, why did your united nations' ambassador say it was all about a video. if they know al-qaida is reconstituting yourself in northern africa . the suggestion that white house didn't want al-qaida
3:04 am
strengthening and sought to deflect that. david axelrod conpletely rejected that notion . i think that is nonsense. it is a tragic event. he calls it an act of terror several times and asked for an investigation to get to the bottom of why it happened and bring those who committed the act of terror to justice. one report on libya. darryl issa was blasted for releasing sensitive state department cables about libya who mentioned a woman activity in libya that was doing work for the state department. it turns out that woman was invited by the united states and hosted by the state department and that visit was publicized on the internet it is no secret who she was.
3:05 am
>> steve: apartnerly the romney side is ready for the president to say he killed bin laden. it is clearer that the administration really dropped the ball on a number of issues. gretchen: apparently the biggest one the drone . half way in the attack. the drone from the united states was sitting above and able to see in real time. the state department seemed to know moment by moment exactly what was happening. if that was going on, why was not more sent in. to save the four americans. >> brian: the state department admitted in a hearing they
3:06 am
were able to view it in real time. cia, former cia commander and guest on our show. they stood and watch our people died. should someone be there to cramble forces there from italy. why was that not made and why would it take you two weeks to understand. if video ask track it in real time and get eyewitnesses on the hand. >> steve: we were warned by the ambassador there that you know, things are deteriorating. gretchen: on that day. >> steve: and tony in the green room, we had assets that were there that could have been there in no time. it was a hot topic on the sunday shows. here are senators graham and
3:07 am
durbin on libya. this is going to be a case study of a break down of national security. famed presidential leadership. and senior leaders of the obama leadership failed misery. benghazi was beinging a death trap. british left red cross left because of security. we asked security because why wanted to normalize the relationship with a nonexistant government. we should have closed that long before september 11 and i put that on the president of the united states. it was a national security break down before and after and during the attack. santor graham and i were in a briefing two weeks in washington and secretary clinton and cia and others. they are engaged in a comprehensive investigation of what occurred here and that's what we have to have.
3:08 am
>> brian: like what happened with the leaks? >> steve: and sounds like another one with iran? >> brian: that was walked back by the white house. they had a source that said iran is ready to talk one on one with us. and james clapper is on record as the national intelligence director saying it was a terrorist attack but said in 24 hours it was a spontanous attack and shared it with the white house. >> steve: you can't have it both days. gretchen: to me after hearing all of this from either side and who released what documents. we need to think about in my mind, the last final hours of our ambassador . onering and asking for security and not getting it. imagine the fear that this man had and the other thing who tried to defepped his life .
3:09 am
knowing he asked for security and none is having it come this way. these four lives. how many hours sitting there wondering is somebody going to come and help me snimpt if you put a specials teem. have you seen our guys and watched black hawk down when our guys didn't the proper back up. how many guys are our special fores able to take out before likewising their lives >> steve: the president will have a lot to explaining to do. last week rather than sit down with bile oriley and bret baier on things he sat down with jon stewart where he said the death of four americans was not optimal tonight he will go up to jay leno.
3:10 am
>> brian: this is the time to walk back fun shows. letterman said what about the dead. he didn't have a round up figure on letterman about the dead. and indicated the video had something to do with the attack. it leads to a president uncare unfamiliar with the philosophy. >> steve: and on 60 minutes he referred to deaths as bumps in the road. don't be surprized if he shows up on the food net work. when he is not on the teleprompter who knows. gretchen: i think he called on the jon stewart show not optimal. that is risky territory. you are mixing comedy with serious news and how do you cross that fine line there? let us know what your questions would be there tonight if you had a chance to ask either of these

dennis calenger. good morning to both of you. dennis starting with you. is it true that president obama up until libya would have won the foreign policy debate against mitt romney. >> certainly confusion of libya is causing a distraction of not only killing osama bin laden but taking down most leadership. the dispute over libya is not whether or not it was a terrorist attack or planned or unplanned attack. mitt romney only wants to touch on that issue. he need toz talk about the economy. the economy ised underpinning . military street. make your point and get back to jobs. this president has done a good
3:26 am
job and most people believe that. gretchen: kate, we heard dennis call it a distraction. you look mystified. that is shocking. it is a bump in the road. benghazi will be hit hard by mitt romney and the lack of security and then the cover up. the cover up all to cover up the implosion of the president's overall foreign policy strategy. the notion that by his sheer force of personality he will get terrorist to work with him. we have seen the rise of al-qaida and not on the run around the world. dennis, can he really say. it was interesting, that president obama said al-qaida was on the run and went back to saying that. let's be clear. this president not only gave
3:27 am
the green light to the military and our intelligence after years of work and hard work and very tough work to find osama bin laden. and not only did he green light getting him and without telling or anybody else he was going to do it. and green lighted them fighting their way out. that is not leadingly from behind. >> to be clear that was leadership and if the election would have been after that it waso no brainer. now we have a libya situation. you also have a president that is skipping majority of the security briefings. and the day after and not meeting with our allies and leaders in the un meeting and blowing off netanyahu and talking to president of the russia saying he would have more flexibility. you sea the weakness. and the result is that.

jordan is a key u.s. ally in the middle east and israel peace partner and has been targeted before. the latest plot was more ambitious in the planning. jordan suspect had weapons aimed at inflicting the heaviest losses possible. the suspects are mill at that points and considered lengths to al-qaida and unclear to how close the militants were to carrying out the attacks. plot included anassinating western diplomats and shopping malls and cafes. and other areas where people from the west gather in aman. militants were arm ready with explosives and mortars and rifles. militants with ties to al-qaida carried out a terror attack and killing the u.s. ambassador and three others
3:35 am
there. it was praised by the al-qaida leader who issued a call for more direct action. jordan's department outlined the intricate plot that the suspects planned to set off two decoy explosion before setting off a series of militia attacks and suicide bombers in the final phase they were to attack diplomatic missions . one question that arises from all of this is asked about the foiled plot in jordan, whether the operation was in the planning stages before benghazi. they began to start in june and smuggle in weapons from neighboring syria into jordan. this was a good stop. >> brian: look at where we are

4:02 am
boyden was able to do a lot of interrupting there in his chair. >> and we will find out if he's scrubbed from the record books. they will announce what will happen to lance armstrong's four tour de france titles after being band from the anti-doping agency. this after the allegation he used performance-enhancing drugs. armstrong continues to maintain his innocence. he went on a shooting spree in wisconsin leaving three dead and then turn the gun on himself. he walked into the salon in milwaukee, started shooting. three women were killed, four other hurt. police locked down a local mall while looking for him and then found his body in a locked room in the spa. they say it was a domestic dispute between him and his wife who worked at the salon but it's still unclear whether she was one of the victim. >> and a fan fell 20 feet off an
4:03 am
escalator after the giants game last night. they say he came crashing down on a metal stage. >> and 50 years ago we learned we were on the verge of a war with cuba. >> this government as pomsed has maintained the closest surveil effortsens of the soviet military buildup on the island of cuba. >> in 1962 president kennedy told the u.s. about the u cuban missile crisis. the crisis ended after 13 days with russia agreeing to remove missiles from cuba and the u.s. agreeing to remove missiles from turkey. and those are your headlines right now. >> there's been a few movies on that too, i think. >> just a couple. mean while we are just hours away from president obama and mitt romney sitting there at that desk for their third and
4:04 am
final face-off. the face-off tonight at in boca raton, florida. >> and speaking of sparks, that's a spark on our show. he's live in boca raton. set the stable for us. >> let's hope one of the candidates doesn't flip the table over and start pacing around the stage. when it comes to active foreign policy experience, there's no question president obama has the edge so gov. romney will try to bridge that experience gap by talking about vision, america exceptionalism, and by making foreign policy an economic issue say you can't with a strong foreign policy or military without a strong economy where you many get your respect in the world n colorado springs yesterday his running mate accused president obama of projecting weakness. >> our adversaries when they see us projecting weakness, when
4:05 am
they see us equivocating when it comes team to stand up for our beliefs and values overseas, they think we are a superpower in decline. they think we are weakening and if we are weakening ourselves, we're less safe. >> and president obama will try to portray the governor as a novice on the foreign policy, all wrong on the issues. and on his last triple say he ticked off our closest ally. and there's a new adams out that gov. romney would rather keep the wars going in iraq and afghanistan than reap the benefits from peace. >> obama has brought 30,000 soldiers back from afghanistan. he -- romney calls it his biggest mistake. >> they say it's time to stop spinning money there and use the money in america but the president also like to stay on the campaign trail we put two
4:06 am
wars on a credit card. so in point of fact, there is no money unless we borrow more of it. guys. >> john roberts at the university. thank you very much. and quick before we bring in donald trump. we've just gotten this as a fox news alert. lance armstrong, as expected, did lose all seven of the tour de france titles. they just announced. >> donald trump joining us live as he does every monday morning. dodged quite a fall from grace for lance armstrong, right? >> amazing. and in the end he falls. he was fighting it and in the end he stopped. a lot of people against him, a lot of people saying things. he could have attributed it to jealousy or whatever. once he gave up, it was over. he came tumbling down and it's a very sad situation for lance. too bad," but he stopped fighting. and once he did that, it was over. >> either admit to it or fight it is what you are saying, correct? >> i used to tweet, lance, what
4:07 am
happened, you stopped fighting. it was over. once he stopped fighting, it was over. like this country. this country stops fighting and we around doing so well. >> let's talk about the fight that will be tonight between president obama and candidate mitt romney on foreign policy. do you think they should both be aggressive like the last time around during the second debate or should they settle down and not be so confrontational? i guess the setting in and of itself will make it a little less confrontation natural. it's going to be a desk with two chairs. we are looking live. >> mitt romney should be very, very aggressive because the target is so easy. this is the worst foreign policy in history. you look at his middle east. i got a kick before when they said he's the most experienced, meaning president obama. it's the worst foreign policy in history. we spent is 11 .$5 trillion in iraq and iraq is going to hell and they all hate is. not to mention the lives we've
4:08 am
lost. the money we've spent, the lives we lost in the middle east, it is the greatest disaster we've ever had. so i would be, if i were mitt romney, be very aggressive because maybe obama wouldn't even answer. pubes i believe. if he did the right thing he wouldn't even respond. >> there's nothing he can respond to. it's a total disaster. and if the press covered it correctly, and they keep saying he's so experienced. yeah, he's experienced but everything he's done is wrong. >> he's going to be able to say i ordered the hit on bin laden. but in the meantime, you are right, sierra, iran, iraq -- >> well, he didn't get it -- fellows and folks, the military got bin laden. he said okay. now who else wouldn't do that? when they come and till they have bin laden, he had a choice. he could say don't get them, which i don't think anybody would say, or get him. and by the way, the seals, from what everything i read, they cannot stand the president because he grandstanded so much about bin laden.
4:09 am
but he didn't get him. he had as much to do with that than you did. >> but tactics, and when he thought he was off a mic by saying i will have a lot of leeway in my second term. do you bring up the fact he was ripping netanyahu to sarkozy? do you think those things are important? >> my many jewish friends who support him, i look at them and say are you intelligent, people? he's been so anti-israel. and i don't get our people who are jewish are supporting obama. i just don't get it. as far as the thing with russia, it was more stupid than anything else to have the mic on. business is business, you talk a certain way, and it showed a certain inclination certainly, but how do you do that when you have a mic on? it was stupid. >> do you think it was a passing comment? a lot of people have taken it very seriously as if to say once i'm re-elected i can do whatever i want? that made a lot of people nervous. >> it wasn't a positive thing,
4:10 am
but to leave the mic on, in my opinion, look, he talked, he thought the mic was on. when he did it, i don't know what he was thinking, but this is our president. this is him. >> and our president is going on the "tonight show" tonight with jay leno. two weeks, i should say. tonight he has a gig. two weeks until the election is done. millions out of work. so many things in the balance. the middle east in blames. do you think this is a good decision? >> nobody treats him better than nbc, and i love nbc, they are my network, that's where we have the apprentice and that's where we have been successful so i love nbc, but nobody treats him better than nbc. you could say yes but david letterman is not going to be happy and other people won't be happy because that's the way the competitive juices work. so probably not. i can't imagine david letterman being happy at all. it will be interesting to watch. >> you know what, donald, the problem, and people say it's such a lay-up, him sitting down next to jay leno, but he sat down with jon stewart last week
4:11 am
and he said not optimal, pairing something. >> not a good statement. not good. >> yeah. so the bar is high. and there are many pit falls to sitting there and trying to be funny. >> well, it's very possible he will make a mistake. i mean, if he makes a mistake, that's bad. i think it will be an extremely soft interview, very soft, and i'm sure they already have that understanding, frankly. but is it a mistake? i think it's more of a mistake because everyone else on television is going to be angry that he's doing it. >> that's an interesting perspective because a lot of people think he's doing it because he's look for the people who don't really pay attention to the news on a daily basis. so they will just see him as being more of the cool president that a lot of people thought of him four years ago. >> i won rate it a mistake. he's going to go on and he's going to hopefully do well for himself and con the people into another four years, which is not what we do. >> he bombs on letterman when he didn't know the deficit. he also said he didn't know what happened in libya. and on jon stewart he looked
4:12 am
detach when trying to be funny. and i think it's a huge risk. >> he bombs all the time but most of the time it's not reported. he bombs all the time. we have a bombing president. >> before you go, we have sources, donald, who tell us that you have a large -- a gigantic announcement this week. >> i do. >> what is if. >> it's going to be announced on wednesday but i have something very, very big concerning the president of the united states. >> give us a hint. >> i won't do that. >> just a little hint. >> i won't do that but i will tuck to you probably on wednesday. that's probably when i'm going to announce what i announce. i announced it on the real donald trump and i announced it sometime wednesday and it will be very big. i know one thing, you will cover it in a very big fashion. >> will it change the election? >> possibly. >> is it personal or is it how he governs? >> it's all in one.
4:13 am
everything. it's very big. >> okay. >> beggar than anybody would know. >> so the announcement@realdonalddump. and you will be back on wednesday? >> i will be back. >> thank you all. >> all right. coming up on fox and friends, the white house story on libya changing day-by-day. is the administration putting american politics over our best interests overseas? >> and the next story you have to see to believe. a marlin said i'm tired of the hook in my mouth. i'm going to take you out with me. what does he do with that sword? >> a sword fight!

4:16 am
>> despite criticism, they
4:17 am
continue to tout the president's foreign policy. >> the president has been a strong and steady leader. we have responsibly ended the war in iraq, we are going to end the war in afghanistan. al-qaeda is a shadow of its former sufficient. and we've now put enough pressure on iran with the cangs regime so they won't develop a nuclear weapon that they want to set down and talk. these are all positive developments moving us toward a more table nation, a more stable world when we faced threats of terrorism every direction. >> but as more details emerge over security concerns in and around the region, isn't it proof the president's strategy unraveling? joining us issen durbin. >> are you guys happy? he says he is inning the war. >> we want to see the wars
4:18 am
gleeted successfully. i saw the campaign commercial that was showed a couple segments beforehand where the president is touting ending the war just like dick durbin did. we want to defeat the enemy. that's the litmus test. as we truly set the taliban back march enough so the afghan army can take over? have we truly created stable environment in iraq so our interests are not threatened? that's what we want to know. just the talking point of ending wars doesn't mean the enemy has been defeated. so you hear a lot of rhetoric and very few results. the record is thin. when you dig below the surface you see more and more unrest is coming out and libya is a perfect example of that. al-qaeda is not gone. they might be on the run. they are on the run to our consulates and embassies pause they smell weakness. >> rate. aim going and you this statement. when the president said i ended the war in iraq responsibly, for a guy who served in iraq and afghanistan, what do you say? >> i say it wasn't ended
4:19 am
responsibly. he ended it because he had a campaign promise that said he would end it. we never signed a status of forces agreement in iraq, which would have allowed us to continue to influence the outcome there. instead prime minister maliki has hedged closer and closer to iran and in doing so further and further away from our interests. and after all the blood and all the money and all the sacrifice which, you know, we honor, to just give it away for a campaign promise shows the shallow nature of that foreign policy. >> so you would like to see mitt romney take him on in that area? >> yeah, take him on. it doesn't mean mitt romney -- they are going to accuse mitt romney of wanting more war. he wants to go back to iraq and double down in afghanistan. that's not the case. take him to task for the outcome. take him to task for the reality on the ground. the difference between egypt and syria. so we undermine an ally in egypt that for 40 years recognizes israel and then we don't do anything with syria, and the assad regime that's a satellite state of iran, we leave arack but in iran we have sanctions
4:20 am
but aren't willing to hold a red line to get a nuclear weapon to take on iran. it's inconsistent. and oh, by the way, our economy is not improve so that will undermine our strength. >> thank you. good luck on your tour. >> thank, brian. >> dead or alive, you can still get food stamps. how bad the entitlements have become. >> and does it make the difference as it did for ronald reagan and when he answered this way? >> i will not make age an issue of this campaign. i am not going to exploit for political purposes my opponents youth and inexperience.

[laughter] >> still funny all these years later and a game changer, correct? >> absolutely. your own bob beckel would say he few in that one line that the election was over. in the first debate ronald reagan had looked a little old, looked like he had lost a step. and he came back in the second debate and that one line proved
4:26 am
that he was on his game and that he was capable of handling a second term. >> a little bit more recent in history, back to 2004, kerry versus bush. >> i can't tell you how much i love my wife and my daughters. when i asked laura to marry me, she said fine, just so long as i never have to give a speech. i said okay, you got a deal. fortunately she didn't hold me to that deal. >> the president and you and i are three examples of lucky people who married up. and some would say maybe me more so than others. but i can take it. >> so what was wrong with that for john kerry? >> that was the last question of the last debate. by bob sceiefer. who moderating tonight.
4:27 am
and kerry describing his wife as a supplier o cash and bush, and bush looked more human. it was a very telling moment, a very good window into the lives of both men. >> very interesting. let go back to 1976. and here we have gerald ford and his infamous eastern europe moment. >> there is no soviet domination of eastern europe, and there never will be under a ford administration. >> what was wrong with that? >> it showed, you know, coming out of -- going into this debate, president ford had taken a good amount of heat for barred dong richard nixon. he was down in the polls, and there was also this perception that he really wasn't up to the task of being president. and that one comment sort of -- he was out of touch on foreign
4:28 am
policy and wasn't really capable of handling the presidency. >> one line can change everything and that's why tonight's debate is so important. brett o'donnell i'm sure will be speaking with you post-game tomorrow. have a good day. thanks so much. >> thanks to be with you. >> while you were sleeping, a terror plot busted. we are live with the developing details next. then watch out, marlin on board? a fish story you have to see to believe. >> i will not make age an issue of this campaign. i am not going to exploit for political purposes my opponent's youth and inexperience.

4:34 am
the suspect had weapons aimed at inflicting the heaviest human loss as possible. jordan announcing the suspects were militants considered linked to al-qaeda, though it's still unclear exactly how close the militants were to actually carrying out the alleged attacks on western targets. the plot included assassinating western diplomats, attacking western diplomatic compounds, shopping malls, calf face and other people where people from the west gather in ahmad. they said the militants were armed and ready with explosives, mortors and rifles. jordan's intelligence community outlined the plot. the 11 suspects planned to set off. and explosions at two select shopping centers in west amman to draw a attention before setting off a series of malicious attacks on other diplomatic targets n the final

good morning, everyone. hope you had a great weekend. today is monday, october 22nd, 2012. i'm gretchen carlson. thanks for sharing your time with us. the final presidential
5:00 am
debate is hours away. the focus this time is foreign policy. can mitt romney get ahead in an area considered a strong point for president obama. we're live with the latest details. speaking of foreign policy, internationally there's a damaging new report on what really happened in libya. it's not quite the story that the white house has been peddling to us. yes, and parents, have your kids look at the tv right now. you heard me, right now. it's the most awesome lesson in patriotism. that's a 93-year-old world war ii veteran who will stop at nothing to cast his vote. we'll tell you that story because "fox & friends" starts right now. [ music ] good morning, everyone. hope you had a fantastic weekend. now it's full steam ahead because in two weeks, we will have the presidential election as well as many senatorial and congressional elections as well there's the debate stage for tonight.
5:01 am
will this determine who will end up being the winner? this is out of boca raton, florida. >> the moderator, bob schieffer, has five topics. there will be six sections, 15 minutes each. he'll talk about the changing middle east and libya. he'll talk about america's role in the world, afghanistan, and deadline for -- the deadline to stop the surge and everything like that. the red lines when it comes to iran and israel among the topics. i think he'll probably let them get personal at the end. he does not want to play a major role in this debate. that's his goal. >> yeah. unlike candy crowley who said she was going to be a little more activist and she was indeed. that didn't work out very well. it's interesting a couple months ago when both sides sat down to do the negotiations for tonight's debate, foreign policy, the conventional wisdom was that the guy, the commander-in-chief, the president had an advantage. then, of course, libya happened. suddenly when you look at the
5:02 am
polls -- >> and syria, too. >> and iraq and iran and israel and russia as well. when you look at the polls regarding foreign affairs, the president of the united states had had a 15-point lead. now they are only four points apart as they head into lynn university. >> one of the main reasons could be the situation in libya. six weeks ago our ambassador and three other brave souls were killed there, and the big question now is what more information are we going to find out before the election? maybe even before the debate tonight? over the weekend a flurry of activity from both sides, republicans and democrats, about what exactly what happened including this. apparently a u.s. drone was actually watching at least the last half of the attack because it went on for hours. if you have a u.s. drone there watching down, seeing everything happening in real-time, then a lot of people would scratch their heads and wonder how you come out with all these different analyses of exactly what went down. also, they say that witnesses say the attack was strong, it
5:03 am
was multi-pronged, and organized with machine guns and rpgs and beinof course, the requests for security were ignored. to me, what's so heartbreaking now, in the flurry of all this paperwork and he said, she said is the lives of these four people and the fact that on that day, on september 11th, the ambassador there screen left, chris stephens, asked repeatedly but specifically as well on september 11th, on the day he died, he asked for more security to come in and those requests were ignored. >> here's what gary burtson told cbs. they stood and they watched and hour people died, and now we know there's a tape out there, evidently, that most people want to see. especially the oversight committee and most americans want to see exactly what happened. the cia said within 24 hours we told everyone woul what would h. david petraeus gave a briefing to lawmakers saying we could have bee had a spontaneous atta.
5:04 am
>> the president a couple of days on the daily show said as soon as information comes out, we share it with american people. all right. let's see the taken. let's see exactly what happened. let's see it with our own two eyes. since four americans died, you've got to scratch your head and say all those guys with rpgs, all those explosions, why didn't they call in a counter strike? why didn't somebody drive another drone over with a hellfire missile? we were talking earlier about the situation in libya which is a big mess. >> i will tell you, though, that in testimony before the house oversight committee, we did hear from charlene lamb that there was a 50-minute video. we believe we should be able to see that video. either in a classified or unclassified setting. they said they could witness this in quote, unquote, real-time. people knew what was happening and when it was going down. this is not something that needed to be sorted over the days afterwards. if we don't ask hard questions,
5:05 am
if we weren't doing this investigation, if darrell issa wasn't help to lead the charge here and myself and others, if we weren't actually pressing the envelope, would we know this? we were led to believe for a couple weeks this was some video gone awry, somebody went to blockbuster and got some video and hey, everybody got mad. >> it's all about every word, though, tonight during the debate, too, because if you take a look back at president obama when he went on the daily show, he called the libya deaths not optimal. on a 60 minutes interview, he called the situation there bumps in the road speaking of the protests going on throughout the middle east, and then mitt romney also found himself in difficult territory during the last debate with the help of the moderator spewing things that weren't necessarily true, but every word will count tonight, and you've got to wonder in the preparations, specifically about libya, how both candidates are preparing to make sure they say exactly the right words. >> and not get too gummed up in the details where people don't think of the big picture. i think mitt romney's got two things to do, take the president
5:06 am
down a peg when it comes to foreign policy and let everyone know there's an alternative point of view and let america know whether sh they should feel comfortable with him or not, knowing he has no direct foreign policy experience which hasn't stopped a lot of leaders we've had in the past including governor ronald reagan. they named an airport after him. that was an indication because democrats voted for that. i think he's got to make it clear. here's my policy, here's where i'm different, and look statsman like at the same time. maybe not being as confrontational with president obama. >> right. i think we're going to get a little taste right now of the approach that governor romney's going to take tonight because the romney campaign just released a statement, and its entitled we can't afford four more years of obama's foreign policy. the other thing he's got to do tonight. >> we'v he has to simply look presidential. if you watched the first two and if you watched the al smith dinner the other night, he certainly passed that. you know what's interesting?
5:07 am
with the not optimal bumps in the road regarding four people dead, what did the president of the united states say regarding the youtube video? he called it crude and disgusting, an insult, big onot. where was the kind of language like that regarding the deaths of those four americans? >> maybe we'll hear that on the leno show later this week. probably not. anyway, the president will make another appearance and we've been saying this morning that we think it may be a little bit of a dicey decision just based on the foreign policy situations that we're facing right now because it's tough to mix comedy with a really serious issue when you have four americans dead and a lot of unanswered questions. i mean, how do you really draw that fine line? as we just mentioned, on the daily show he called it not optimal, and if you're a member of one of those families, of one of the four that died, you probably have a different way of
5:08 am
describing it. >> chris smith's mom was outraged. i read some of her comments in the paper. it's tough to do this. he'll have brian williams following him around another three days to go to an nbc show. they'll be somewhat friendly. jay leno asks some real questions. >> he does. >> he was off his game on the daily show in that he was abilityinactingas if this was an appearance. it just looked like two people missing each over. >> you've got to wonder whether or not the white house schedulers and the campaign schedulers put the l. leno show two days after the debate as almost a rebuttal, just in case they've got to put out any fires. he's going to jay on wednesday. he'll be on your tv right here on fox tonight at 9:00 along with mitt romney. new details about a fox news alert we've been following this morning. a shooting spree inside a wisconsin spa where three were killed. good morning, steve. >> reporter: good morning, gretchen. police are still trying to piece together exactly what happened yesterday, but they do say this,
5:09 am
that this was the work of a single shooter and that that single shooter was 45-year-old radcliffe haughton. now, apparently haughton had a restraining order against him to keep him separated from his estranged wife who worked at the spa where the shooting took place yesterday, all playing out about 11:00 yesterday morning. that's when 9-1-1 calls started going out saying that someone with a gun was inside of the building. in the aftermath of cleaning up and a fire that was there, police found three women shot and killed, and haughton himself killed apparently from a self inflicted gunshot wound. four other women were wiewned and taken to area hospitals. now, neighbors of haughton when he got the news were stunned to find out who it was that was behind the shooting. have a listen. >> very unusual. i can't -- we just seen the picture and we said god, that is
5:10 am
haughton. we seen a picture of him. we knew him. we first met his wife and earlies. you never know until you know. pretty unusual for a fellow like that. i always thought he was -- my impregnant him was impression ol nice kid. >> whether o still unanswered ir the estranged wife of the shooter was among those wounded or shot and killed. it doesn't appears that she's among the wounded. we have the ages of those folks that were shot and wounded, and currently hospitalized. thithey don't seem to match up h zena how tan. we don't have the names of any of those shot and killed inside. it appears this is domestic violence. that's what police have said throughout their public statements in the aftermath of this particular shooting. what specifically may have triggered this entire incident is unknown. again, there was a restraining order, and it is our understanding that radclif radce haughton after being served the order was supposed to turn in all weapons that he had

5:18 am
what this president has done to the economy of this country. >> we simply cannot afford four more years of barack obama. that's what the romney campaign says they'll hammer. >> absolutely right. i remember bill clinton at the convention saying the economy was so bad, neither he or any of his predecessors could have fixed it. ronald reagan fixed the economy in three years. >> that's right. >> he was reelected because he had fixed the economy. barack obama is saying give me four more years to do what i did the first time? i don't think so. >> i remember with your father, and the debate against jimmy carter, one of the things he said was that jimmy carter has wasted four years trying to figure out what leadership around the world is all about, and you've got to have peace through strength. >> oh, absolutely right. you've got to have peace through strength. of course, the debate tonight is on foreign policy. you know, i would hope that mitt romney would ask the president of the united states what do you think of prime minister malachi of iraq saying to your

5:20 am
the economy going. we need somebody who's created jobs, somebody who understands the economy and puts america back to work. >> ronald or michael, real quickly before you go. mitt romney has been described as looking very presidential in the previous two debates, some have said reaganesque. would you go with that? >> he's look doggone good. w>> michael, thanks for joining us from the city of angels. the fight for florida will be a close one. coming up next, the four factors that could swing that race. governor mike huckabee knows them well. he's on deck. then, you think you've got a nasty neighbor? take a look at this guy chucking eggs, and that's not all. all caught on camera sadly for him. kaboom with the window.

what's working in florida? how is mitt romney pulling this off to this point? joining us now, a man who knows a lot of about politics and other stuff with a great background drop. governor, what is mitt romney finding that the people of florida are suddenly listening to? >> well, let me tell you. i think mitt romney is going to carry florida. i'm going to just tell you that i believe barring something major, he is going to win florida for four reasons, and that is, first of all, there's been a huge shift in the state in women voters. that's been a huge thing. it's been about a 19-point swing. the second reason is military. both retired as well as active duty. it's a huge state for military, and there is an incredibly strong support for mitt romney. the third reason is seniors which may surprise a lot of people, but i think people who are seniors are smart enough to have gotten where they are and they understand that, you know,

5:27 am
in these final days, a lot of people in ohio are going to ask themselves are they better off? the truth is they're not. even though the unemployment rate has been better, it's largely due to the efforts of the governor, not because barack obama and his economic policies have been effective in ohio. >> you know, governor, tonight everybody is looking forward to the exchange regarding libya since the topic is foreign affairs, and at the last one, many regard what the president said as quite a whopper where he said you know the day after i said it was an act of terror which when you look at all of his comments, he was speaking more broadly about t terror andn specific about 9/11/2001. how does mitt romney handle libya tonight? >> you know, steve, my dad used to tell me. he was not an educated man but he was pretty wise old guy. he said son, if you just tell the truth, you don't have to remember what you said the last time. i'm afraid what's going on with

barack obama, he can't remember what he said the last time he had a story. that's part of the problem with the changing narrative. what mitt romney needs to do is not press just on benghazi but the broader issue of the fact that this administration simply does not want to call terrorism what it is. if i were romney, i would push hard and ask him tell me. was fort hood terrorism? whawas little rock and the shoog of that soldier outside the recruiting terrorism? it's a yes or no question. don't nuance it. tell me yes or no. that's a hard point he needs to make. >> he gets in trouble when he asks barac president obama ques. in the overall section, how does he sell himself as credible on foreign policy and going after the last four years? how would you do this? >> i think mitt has done a great job. one of the things he's been able to do is point out that the strategy of the obama administration which has been let's appease and play the flute and charm the snake into the basket has not worked.
5:29 am
the snake is out of the basket and is biting us every day. mitt romney is showing if that's experience, we could use somebody new with a different version of how to deal with the cry sees of the world. >> governor mike huckabee, joining us from the florida panhandle on his ver ran da. governor, thank you very much for joining us live today. >> always a pleasure. thank you, guys. >> thank you, sir. >> those are the most incredible pictures from the last 100 years and now they can be yours. national geographic for sale ... next. then we asked you what do you want to hear from the candidates in tonight's final debate at lynn university? your e-mail pouring in. we're reading them allowed a ale roll on live from new york city. [ music ] hi, i'm phil mickelson. i've been fortunate to win on golf's biggest stages. but when joint pain and stiffness
5:30 am
from psoriatic arthritis hit, even the smallest things became difficult. i finally understood what serious joint pain is like. i talked to my rheumatologist and he prescribed enbrel. enbrel can help relieve pain, stiffness, and stop joint damage. because enbrel, etanercept, suppresses your immune system, it may lower your ability to fight infections. serious, sometimes fatal events including infections, tuberculosis, lymphoma, other cancers, and nervous system and blood disorders have occurred. before starting enbrel, your doctor should test you for tuberculosis and discuss whether you've been to a region where certain fungal infections are common. don't start enbrel if you have an infection like the flu. tell your doctor if you're prone to infections, have cuts or sores, have had hepatitis b, have been treated for heart failure, or if, whilen enbrel, you experice persistent fever, bruising, bleeding, or paleness. [ phil ] get back to the things that matter most. ask your rheumatologist if enbrel is right for you. [ doctor ] enbrel, the number one biolog medicine prescribed by rheumatologists.

5:34 am
of representatives. >> i like the ray lewis pep talk. don't worry about injuries, guys. >> i thought he said where is governor chris christie when you need him? >> he said he was the front line in a very nice way, of course. let's look at what you think is going to happen tonight at this last and final debate on foreign policy between president obama and mitt romney. debbie in arkansas asks this question. as the mom of two sons on two different military bases, i want to know how optimal is the security of our nation's defenders today. of course, she's picking up on the word optimal where the president on the jon stewart show recently called the deaths in benghazi not optimal. >> steve, you do a good carol. >> male or female? >> we'll find out. >> okay. thank very much. carol in texas writes who made the policy to deny increasingd security for the libyan ambassador? what were the reasons behind this decision? were there any plans to remove him from danger? why was there no asi assistancet immediately from nb nearby?
5:35 am
you know, carol, that question was asked by that guy who asked about libya. he said who made the determination no more security? they could take another bite at the apple, but chances are he wouldn't answer it then, either. >> okay. eddie in south carolina says hey, how about this? how are you going to deal with the debt to china? >> actually, that is the fifth and final segment. bob shiefer schieffer, it's my understanding, delineated the five different segments. china happens to be the last one. many people feel as far as the future of the nation and the money woes that that's very important and number two, one of the reasons you bring domestic policy into the discussion tonight even though you're not supposed to. you'll probabl probably be ablen you talk about kind. >> i believe the first person who says you can't have a foreign policy without a strong economy, that will be a pretty good statement. president obama set to sit down with jay leno on wednesday night. that's not sitting well with donald trump. he joined us earlier on "fox &
5:36 am
friends". >> i think it will be an extremely soft interview, very soft, and i'm sure they already have that understanding, understanding,frankly. is it a mistake, i think it's more of a mistake because everybody else on television will be angry that he's doing it. the president will mark his fifth appearance on the tonight show and the third since he became president. major terror plot dubbed 9/11 two in jordan. men reportedly planned to bomb shopping centers and hotels and attack embassies. the suspect smugd weapons and bombs in from syria and got help from al-qaeda operatives in iraq. the attack was planned for november on the seventh anniversary of the bombing in jordan. >> i believe it's spreading. >> meanwhile, think you have a bad neighbor? try this guy on for size. he was busting chucking eggs, burning grass, and throwing
5:37 am
rocks through car windows. cops in miami arrested mitchell gelko for criminal miss chief, saying he ha harassed his neighr for more than a year. thanks to surveillance videos like this, kaboom, they were able to catch one of the world's worst neighbors. the national geographic society has documented our history through photos for more than 100 years. now these pieces of art are going on sale. this is a portrait of admiral robert perry on his 1908 expedition to the north pole. here's another up for sale. charles bittinger's view of the earth from the moon. it's among 240 pieces up for grabs at auction in december. it's expected to bring in at least $3 million. >> if you get me in the grab bag, i'd like the moon one. >> you mean for the secret santa? >> that's what i'm thinking. if you pull out my name. >> i already bought beer. >> last year the pocket chair just as expensive.
5:38 am
that was from lauren. their tax rates are already high, among the highest in the nation. guess what? now california voters are facing two more tax hikes this november. william la jeunesse joins us live with details on the issues. pay up. >> reporter: yeah. imagine, brian, paying 52 cents of every dollar that you earn to the government. that will be the combined federal and state income tax rate for the top three% of tack pairers in california if the president's tax plan is approved along with that's right% tax increase -- long with a 30% tax increase from governor jerry brown. >> we're asking the highest earners to ma pay more to keep r economy strong. >> reporter: the governor says californians need to may more. >> it's either massive cuts to the schools and colleges or the most blessed and the most well off paying one or two or three percent more. >> reporter: if it sounds
5:39 am
familiar ... >> i also want to ask the wealthiest house holds in america to pay spliel slightly r taxes. >> reporter: brown took a page from the obama playbook. their fair share means the top one percent will pay up to 13% of their salary in state income taxes. roughly one half of the state's income tax revenue. it also satellite raises the sales tax -- slightly raises the sales tax. >> we already rank number one in all 50 states in state sales tax and we have the second highest income tax rate. >> reporter: brown's prop 30 isn't the only tax increase facing voters. prop 38 raises income taxes on all taxpayers, not just the wealthy. critics oppose both both. >> it's like given a choice between the gas chamber and the electric chair. both are detrimental to the economy and will drive more businesses and jobs out of state rot pollstate.
5:40 am
>> reporter: polypolypollspollsh measures are in trouble. both increases are supported by the teachers and public employee unions, yet despite that, $70 million in advertising in support of these tax increases, both are below 50%. why, brian? analysts say many people believe the schools need the money. they just don't trust sacramento to spend it effectively. thank you. >> we've heard that before. william la jeunesse, thanks very much. >> he seems to be the only one left there. >> i know. no one can afford to stay. meanwhile, next on the rundown, i've worked it out. a damaging new report on what really happened in libya, and it's not quite the story the administration has been peddling, so what else has the white house been hiding? the senator leading the investigation joins us next. yep. then here's what you should never do during a police chase.

introducing the new droid razr maxx hd by motorola. now more than ever droid does. [ male announcer ] finally, mom's oven-baked tastes
5:44 am
straight from the microwave. like oven-roasted chicken in a creamy alfredo sauce. marie callender's new comfort bakes. it's time to savor. 44 minutes after the top of the hour. quick headlines for you. taxpayers shelled out billions to save aig an the company's ceo wants a pat on the back. he said the inconsiderate feds failed to say thank you after his company repaid the largest government bailout in history. the video will make your heart stop. watch this. whoa. innocent pedestrian nailed by car going full speed, the driver trying to escape police. more incredible, after the man was hit, he bounced off the windshield and walked away,
5:45 am
apparently unharmed. no word on what happened to the driver. guys? >> thanks, gretch. several startling new reports are out showing the united states was anything but prepared for the terrorist attack on our consulate in benghazi. >> that has lawmakers on capitol hill wonder what other information is being held back from the american people. south carolina senator lindsey graham has wondered the same thing and is acting on it. he's asking questions as a member of the armed services committee. as this thing unfolds, we found out now and you probably knew already but there was a drone scramble to take video of this site. how does that change things? >> well, at the end of the day, this was september the 11th, right? a day of heightened concern throughout the world. name a place more vulnerable than benghazi, libya. for seven hours plus this consulate was attacked, and all we could do is send a drone over to take photos? there was no ground forces available to get there with than
5:46 am
seven hours on september 11th and no air power available? i find that stunning and disappointing. you could see this coming from a mile away. the place had been deteriorating for months. it's just another failure in a series of failures. >> senator right now you're in boca, the site of tonight's foreign policy debate between mitt romney and barack obama. at some point tonight mitt romney -- regarding libya. at some point mitt romney should turn to the president and say what about it? >> did you know that our consulate was attacked in april, mr. president? did you know it was again attacked in june, blowing a hole in the wall that 40 people could penetrate? were you aware of the fact that the british decided to leave benghazi because it was too dangerous? were you aware of the fact that the red cross office was attacked and they decided to close and the french left? were you aware of the fact that al-qaeda was coming back in droves into benghazi, the al-qaeda was flying over libyan government offices?
5:47 am
why did you not do anything about this? why did you not close the consulate or heavily reinforce it, mr. president? what were you doing between april and september? >> at the same time you have other people like david axelrod and people like thomas friedman saying that the libya controversy is utterly con drived. your reaction? >> well, was the attack in april inspired by video? was the june attack inspired by video? no. what's contrived is the effort by some media outlets to cover up one of the biggest national security failures in modern times. this was a failure before benghazi, during the attack itself, an after. it's been an effort to mislead to keep the narrative going that al-qaeda's been dismantled. if you believe, in fact, al-qaeda-inspired militia attacked this conflict using mortars and heavy weapons, so much for that narrative. what's been contrived is the story of explaining the attack. there's the disconnect between
5:48 am
the world as it exists and being explained barack obama. there's a dangerous disconnect between the obama's administration characterization of the world and the way it exists. >> it sounds as if you think mitt romney can win this tonight. >> absolutely. in many ways the foreign policy decisions of this president, leading from behind, scaring our friends, emboldening our enemies make him look like a genius. al-qaeda in iraq has doubled in size. syria is a contagion affecting the whole middle east. he has made very poor choice. if he continues to undercut commanders advice in afghanistan, i'm certain there's going to be a request to enforce in afghanistan. he never gave them enough troops, and pulling the surge forces out in september was a political decision, not a military decision. >> senator lindsey graham, sounds like you coul could do te
5:49 am
debate tonight. governor romney will go shoulder to shoulder sitting at a desk with bob schieffer staring at him with president obama. it should be exciting. thanks for joining us. coming up next, he said mitt romney was at a low point just a few weeks ago. that's how the race has been sliding away, so what does michael goodwin think now, the man who voted for president obama in 2008? up next, we'll talk about mitt romney's momentum. let's check in with bill hemmer and find out what he did this weekend but what he has planned for the show. >> the weekend was so action-packed. it would take more than two hours. >> just talk about the show, then. >> right on. morning to both of you and thank you. just like you were talking about with libbed se lind see lindsey. we have new apology numbers, a killer lineup. karl rove and john sununu. it's an important week in

he is a former obama supporter who called mitt romney a good loser. but this week michael goodwin says that will help him win this election. new york post columnist and fox news contributor michael goodwin is here. by the way, his articles are now on so wait a minute. topsy-turvy. you didn't like mitt romney's performance and now you do. where are you today? >> look. google into the first debate i asked mitt are you a good loser? are you quietly accepting defeat? are you happy enough that you got the nomination, sort of like you got into the super bowl, you don't really care if you win the super bowl because just by getting there you're happy. that's the way it looked until october 3rd. he was taking all kinds of
5:54 am
punches, wasn't hitting back, didn't seem to have a clear strategy. they said they were happy where they were which is three or four points down nationally. you go into the first debate the same day i asked the question, and in hybri behind site behin . we're seeing a whole different candidate, more confident, much more aggressive candidate. when they take the stage tonight for the third debate, it seems to me that mitt romney is not only prepared to lose, he's determined to win. >> so in essence, then, your conclusion is that he's not a good loser because he has something within him that hates to lose, correct? >> it was just the old line, the vince lombardi line. show me a good loser and i'll show you a loser. mitt romney, i think as i said, was trending that way, but no longer. he now looks like a winner, he acts like a winner, and i think that's contagious. i think people pick up on that. people pick up on the confidence, they pick up on the
5:55 am
sense of he's not just running for president, he's being presidential. all those things i think are important because they go to how people see a candidate, the transformation from challenger to a real likely winner. >> also during these debates, it's maybe the first time a lot of people have seen a candidate other than the negative advertising. >> sure. >> one of the ways in which he improved with one group of voters, i think was with women because they saw him in a bigger light at those debates other than just one issue like contraception or birth control. he is still down, though, in the polls with women. in your respectful opinion, what does he need to do? >> well, look. there's a lot of talk that he has to be more likeable and kind of softer in some ways. i don't really think that's the answer. i think that what people are looking for in a president is not a buddy, but somebody they trust. somebody they're willing to say this person can lead the country because most people don't want tto be paying attention to it every day. they want to give the job to somebody they trust to do the job. i think right now president
5:56 am
obama has a trust deficit among the public. when you look at these polls, for example, the "wall street journal", and nbc news poll, the president got 53% of the vote four years ago. he's now getting 47%. i mean, that' that drop is realy about trust and performance. i think mitt romney has an opportunity to fill in that gap, to show as he has been since october 3rd that he is presidential. tonight i think in this final debate i think the cliff is not so high any more. he has more to lose by overplaying the debate. i think he simply has to stand on the stage and be solid and be presidential again, and i think he'll do very well. >> michael goodwin, new york post cleanuppist, fox news contributor, and more of your debate questions two minutes away.
